    Series 3 of this fantastic UK tv show has just finished

    Have any of you been watching it?

    I believe that there is a US version now too.

    UK version? No.

    US version? Yes. Great show. Better than the other soap-opera-vampires on tv.

    I really like the US version. I'm hooked on the character development. It's one of the few shows that is on TV that I look forward to seeing every week.

    Just started watching the US version. Better story line than I anticipated and yes....better than the vampire soap operas that are on now. Plus the one actor Sam Witwer (the vampire) has a smockin hot body. He did a brief nude scene on Smallville a couple years back.......all I can say is thank god you can pause live tv now. icon_twisted.gif

    Was a fan of the UK series before it came over here. Saw Series 1 and 2, but have only been able to catch a couple of the Series 3.

    Been watching the US version on/off...will probably get more interested in it after the plot lines between US and UK diverge a little...right now, it feels a little like rehash. But it's starting to diverge already, which is a good thing.

    icon_smile.gif Great show!

    i've been watching the uk version since day one. i totally love it. saturdays show had an interesting story arc. if any of you have watched the uk version, i'd love to know who plays the cute, hot, shaved head guy. i believe his name is tom on the show. i could watch him race all over the place shirtless all day long! i must admit, i'm not really a fan of the us version. but hey, to each their own.

    I'm a big fan of the UK version, but haven't caught the US version yet. Part of my UK-version fandom is for Russell Tovey, though; it's always good to see an openly gay actor doing well for himself, even if he does have to spend a lot of time in were-drag.

    It's one of my favorite shows right now. Sam Witwer has managed to be a part of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica which earns him major points for me icon_smile.gif Sometimes I find the plots and dialogue weak, but the interesting relationship between the 3 housemates is what draws me in the most I think.

    I started watching the US version when it came out, then my roommate found the UK version. We stopped watching the US vers. because we both liked the UK vers. better. Haven't seen the 3rd season yet though.

    I am currently watching both versions. Although I prefer the UK version more at this point, I have to say Sam Witwer (Aiden) is the easiest on my eyes. I have loved him since Battlestar Galactica!

    Only seen pictures of the UK one for promoting it.
    But I love the US version of Being Human.

    What!?!
    The US version is terrible! The cast might be prettier but they cannot act! They also over-powered vampires- reduced the ghost's abilities- created more plot holes- turned 'Sally's' plot into garbage- etc etc. The warmth is gone- the lovability it gone- it's just another horrible US adaptation with cheesy pop-culture "humor."

    True Blood owns the this series.

    The UK version is by far much better, in my opinion. Russell Tovey is adorable!
